A good vanilla porter, but maybe a bit overdone. Almost tastes like medicine.

Dark brown with tan head that dissipates quickly, soft carbonation, roasty aroma, roasty taste with hints of mocha and vanilla. I enjoyed it, I have a weakness for easy drinking porters.

Tap at brewpub, a vanilla porter that is eerily similar to breckenridges but this one has a little more roast in the finish and still the odd ball artificial vanilla.
